Liquid Sculpey® is so versatile, especially when it comes to creating fashion accessories! In this tutorial purple, silver, and gold polymer clays are swirled together to make a groovy hair adornment. Follow these easy steps to make your own beautiful and unique Purple Aura Hair Pin! 

A few reasons I love working with Liquid Sculpey®: 

  • It’s easy to use.
  • Endless design possibilities. 
  • The result is both flexible and strong!
  • No kneading required (which is wonderful because I have arthritis in my hands). 
  • No harsh smell.
  • Simple to clean up. 
  • It’s fun!

Materials List


  1. Preheat the silicone mold according to the instructions on the package. It will be warm when removing from the oven so do this carefully (use a potholder and place it on a heat-safe surface). 

  2. When the mold is cooler to the touch place it on your (covered) work surface. 

  3. Now the Liquid Sculpey® clay can be applied to the mold! Shake the (closed) bottles thoroughly before use. For this project use the Sculpey Tools™ 3D Jewelry mold’s small cube shapes. Layer small amounts of each clay color on top of each other until the shape is filled to the top.

  4. Use toothpicks (or similar disposable or washable tool) to carefully swirl the clay around a few times. This will add to the dimension of the design. 

  5. Get air bubbles out of the clay by popping any you can see with a toothpick. The tray can also be lifted slightly and gently dropped down to force out any remaining air bubbles. 

  6. Next, use the enclosed squeegee tool to remove excess clay. Gently scrape it along the top of the mold and wipe off any excess (if there’s a lot scrape it into a container to reuse). 

  7. Carefully place the filled mold into an oven-safe dish (I used ceramic). Be sure it stays evenly balanced or the liquid clay can run out of the mold. 

  8. Bake according to the Liquid Sculpey® clay’s instructions on the package. Check it in increments of 5 minutes, and remove when the clay is relatively solid. When making this tutorial the Liquid Sculpey® took about 15 minutes in the oven to harden, but this can vary based on your oven and clay thickness. 

  9. Carefully remove the mold from the oven (use protective mitts) and allow it to cool. 

  10. Pop the clay pieces out of the molds onto a clean work surface. Trim or pull off the excess clay around the shape. 

  11. Glue the cube shape onto the hair pin using superglue. Allow the hair pin to dry for 24 hours before wearing.
